Busy Busy Busy

Whewwwwww...

We've been home since Thursday night, but it's been non-stop, go go go! In fact, we have to go go go again in about 20 minutes so this is just a quick little update to let you guys know I'm still alive and we're doing really well.

1. graduation went really well. Except for the fact that during the whole ceremony people were creeping politely on their knees to take pictures of their graduate except for when it was time for Trey to go up. Then they decided to not so politely stand in my way so I got a crap picture. More pictures to come later.
2. It took about a day and 1/2 to get readjusted to living with each other again. It was hard for him coming into a mostly packed house. Even harder to learn that you can no longer leave your shit laying around at any time. You never know when someone might want to come and take a gander at the house!
3. But it's good now and i'm loving every.single.second we have together.
4. We got family pictures taken with his family yesterday and i'm prettttty sure they will end up coming out amazingly and i'll have a really hard time picking out just a few.
5. My grandmother finally passed away yesterday. Last night around 7:30 actually. We knew it was coming. She's been suffering really badly all week and she was down to 7 breaths a minute yesterday. I had a hard time with it last night, but I really know that she's much much better off. I can just imagine her running around with my grandfather not even losing a breath. Actually I can't imagine them frolicking around together. More like playing poker or rummy with one of her "damn ice coffees" in hand.
6. Trey is about to kill me with these damn Army workouts. Thank God that tomorrow is a day of rest. Literally, I'm thanking Him. My legs can barely hold themselves up and are in a constant state of wobble, my abs hurt so much I can barely breath in and out.
7. Tonight we're going to hang out with a couple of our good friends. I've seen them countless times since Trey's left but I'm excited for him to see everyone again. These are the two guys that Trey's been close with since 9th grade. *and their beautiful wives*
8. Tomorrow we're going to church in the morning. Again, I've gone here and there since he's been again, but I'm AGAIN, so excited for him to see everyone.

That is all for now. Preparing to go back into work on Monday and am dreading it will enjoy every day since it's my last week.
Here's to hoping the rest of the week crawls by at a snails pace!

Oh hun, I'm so sorry about your grandmother. I know how you feel more than you realize. My Nana passed away a year ago tomorrow from COPD. It was tough to see her decline so rapidly in the end, but I was also just relieved she was healthy again. Your grandmother sounds a lot like my Nana. She was the queen of gin rummy. No one could ever beat her. And she passed down her love for homemade coffee milkshakes!

You're in my thoughts and prayers right now. I'm glad your hubs was home with you when it happened! Hugs!

First of all I'm sorry to hear that your grandmother passed away but at least now she can rest.

I'm glad to hear that you and the hubs are doing well though and that everything seems to be going ok. Have a great final week at work.

Sorry about your grandma. At least she didn't have to suffer too long and your husband is there for you.

Oh hun - I'm sorry about your grandma, but I love your attitude about it. You're so right - she's definitetly better off now that she's not suffering anymore. I loved your description of her and your granddad playing poker and rummy and drinking ice coffees!

I'm so glad you and Trey are adjusting to living together again - and God knows I could use an Army workout... so after he kicks your ass into shape, send him to Alabama, k? Haha...
